Are you ready to go full moustache?

Agatha Christie gave her famous detective one. Salvador Dalí once claimed his was “the most serious part” of his personality. Colin Farrell has worn them repeatedly in the likes of Miami Vice, True Detective, The Lobster, and off-screen too. An Anglo-Saxon helmet found at Sutton Hoo featured a very precise bronze model, and the Mona Lisa gained one courtesy of Duchamp. They’re everywhere in Wes Anderson’s films, and Freddie Mercury’s was inexplicably sexy. Moustaches may, on the surface, seem like a simple rash of hair above the lip, but they’re a whole lot more. Comedic, camp, sinister, subversive, masculine, arty and divisive, they’re the facial hair motif with bite. And lately they’ve been experiencing a renaissance.

Timothée Chalamet toyed with one in 2020. Paul Mescal was spotted sporting his own at Cannes last spring (his facial hair experiment had started out as a bit of fun, but a director told him to keep it). Also in the spring, the actor Jessie Buckley went to the Met Gala in a look inspired by Dalí’s Mustache book, with a comic homage drawn on her upper lip. At Venice Film Festival in September it made neat appearances on fashion designer Haider Ackermann and the actor Dhafer L’Abidine, while Rami Malek and Sam Rockwell sport them in this autumn’s period films Amsterdam and See How They Run. They were spotted on Burberry and Bottega Veneta’s SS23 catwalks, and not so long ago I grew my own. It was inspired in part by The Lighthouse – where Robert Pattinson’s absolutely bonkers performance was complemented by a large ’tache sprawling along his lip – and in part by lockdown boredom. Was it my version of the “Zoom earring”? Certainly, for men who don’t want to experiment with make-up, it has a similar effect to a strong lip.

Walker’s moustache moodboard is extensive, including Albert Einstein, Lionel Richie and Ackermann, though he thinks Mercury’s is probably the best. “Maybe it’s because he’s got a gigantic mouth. It’s like a beautiful, gilded frame surrounding a rare masterpiece.” Hairstylist Kalle Eklund, who grew his moustache because his stubble was giving his ex-husband a rash, picks Ned Flanders as his favoured icon. He notes most responses to his own flip-flop between “porn star” and “someone’s dad”.
